Modular Microtonal Guitar Made Possible with LEGO #MusicMonday
Apparently you really can make anything with LEGOs. A father and son team has created a modular, microtonal guitar made possible with LEGO frets. Here’s more from the Georgia Tech School of Music.
The Lego Microtonal Guitar won People’s Choice in the 2021 Guthman Musical Instrument Competition. Designed by a father-son team, this instrument uses a customizable fretboard made from off-the-shelf and 3D-printed legos.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
